Nuvei bolsters US igaming expansion via AGA membership

Global payments tech firm Nuvei has become the newest member of the American Gaming Association, the group announced in a press release on Wednesday.

Nuvei – New Member of AGA

In a move that would further expand its presence across the US gaming and online casino market, Nuvei’s alignment with AGA would prove vital in ensuring that industry collaborators are up to date with the latest technology.

Neil Erlick, the firm’s chief corporate development officer, has also joined the AGA board of directors. The executive will be giving first-hand insight into the industry’s work on advancing payment modernization opportunities in gaming.

Nuvei has also thrown its support in AGA’s campaigns, initiatives and task forces, most significantly the modernization of the payment working group.

The AGA is bracing a huge windfall for the betting industry this month with 47.4 million Americans expected to wager on the NCAA March Madness tournament. Surprisingly, the figure represents a similar figure to those that indicated they would bet on the tournament in 2019.

The AGA tapped the service of Morning Consult to crunch up the numbers ahead of the biggest basketball event in college basketball.

Philip Fayer, Nuvei’s chairman and CEO, said:

“We are excited to collaborate with the AGA and are confident that our participation will further expand our growth in the US igaming market. Playing an active role in ensuring that industry collaborators are up to speed with technological advances is very important to us,”

“As innovative leaders committed to the success of online gaming operators, we find it our responsibility to ensure regulatory bodies are fully aware of what payment tech is capable of in encouraging responsible wagers, fighting fraud, and equipping merchants and players alike with the necessary tools to ensure fast and secure transactions.”

Bill Miller, president and CEO at AGA, noted:

“We are excited to welcome Nuvei and their industry expertise to the AGA family,”

“The AGA is focused on helping the industry recover from the devastating impacts of COVID-19 on gaming. As an industry and an association, we are stronger when we’re working together. With the help of members like Nuvei, we can accelerate our recovery.”
